His story in his own words:
I was raised Catholic and went to Catholic school all the way through high school. I had never thought about becoming a priest. I first felt a desire for priesthood when I was a senior in high school. When I was in college, that desire grew. I began to notice signs that God may be calling me to priesthood. The feeling of a call to priesthood became so great that I couldn't ignore it, so I decided to enter into seminary.
I like the idea of serving those who helped me to grow in my own faith. I want to bring Christ to people in a real way and minister to my friends and family [in the Diocese of Jackson].
I have many favorite saints, but I have always felt close to St. Joseph. He was a quiet, humble and compassionate man. He is my confirmation saint and I have always been inspired by his quiet humility. He is a great example of a good, Catholic man.
I really enjoy praying the rosary, and meditating on the mysteries of Christ's life while asking our Lady for her intercession. It is a very powerful prayer and spiritual weapon. I also love spending time with our Lord in Eucharistic adoration. I enjoy getting to pray face to face with our Lord.
I enjoy playing guitar and listening to music. I also enjoy camping, hiking and being outdoors, and I also enjoy cooking, though I am not very good!
